Running has been a part of Jen's life for as long as she can remember. She ran at the collegiate level in both cross country and track & field; specialising in the 5k and 10k. After college she continued to run and shifted her focus to the half and full marathon distances. She moved out west to Seattle, WA in her early 30’s. It was at that moment that she began to fall in love with the mountains. In addition to running, she begin to hike and climb mountains like Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Hood and Mt. Baker. Her running focus now is primarily on trails at both the sub ultra and ultra distances. She is a top local competitor with many podium finishes. She likes to keep her speed sharp so she still runs on the road and track. Being able to close hard on a trail race is her secret to success!
